CENTRIC BRANDS STRENGTHENS PRIDE PARTNERSHIP WITH LGBTQ+ SENSITIVITY WORKSHOP
July 18, 2022
As part of our year-round diversity, equity and inclusion programming, Centric Brands partnered with the It Gets Better Project to run an LGBTQ+ Sensitivity workshop for associates across our offices. The workshop, moderated by Rae Sweet, Education Coordinator at the It Gets Better Project, covered important topics ranging from the use of pronouns, to allyship, to how to create safe and inclusive work environments. Associates asked questions and discussed the ideas of welcoming spaces, appropriate language, and the differences and intersections of gender identity and gender expression.
The workshop will be succeeded with a permanent LGBTQ+ employee resource program, inclusive of self-guided modules, that will be available to all Centric Brands associates.
The It Gets Better Project is a nonprofit organization with a mission to uplift, empower, and connect lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer youth around the globe. Learn more about their work here.
